About this artwork

This is one of the prints from the Ned Kelly series depicting Australia's most famous bush ranger, Ned Kelly. Nolan's Ned Kelly series tells us the story of Ned Kelly and his gang during the 19th century. There are 27 in the series although only a few have been published as prints. The original is held at the National Gallery of Australia.
"Many of the policemen did not want to encounter the Kellys. Kelly was a wrathful myth in his own day and the frightened policeman got out of the way in the corner of the painting and gave Kelly centre stage." - Sidney Nolan
Published by a leading Australian art print supplier.

1917 - 1992 Sidney Nolan was born in Melbourne on 22 April 1917. He studied intermittently at the National Gallery Art School, Melbourne, from 1934, and engraving and lithography under S.W.Hayter at the Atelier 17, Paris in 1957. During the Second World War, Nolan was conscripted into the army and served at Dimboola in the Wimmera District of Victoria 1942-1945. In 1946 he began a series of paintings on the theme of the bush ranger Ned Kelly, and later painted personal interpretations of historical and legendary figures such as Eliza Fraser and Burke and Wills, in which he expressed the feeling of the country and the timelessness of the myths. Nolan also painted a series of works portraying Central Australia. From 1950 Nolan lived mainly in Britain and became Australia's most internationally celebrated painter. He also designed sets for ballet and opera and provided illustrations for books. He died in London on 28 November 1992, aged 75.
